Features and Benefits
This is a cutting edge network video surveillance camera. It can capture, compress and
transmit real time video in excellent quality (15 FPS 2 Megapixel, 1920 x 1080). This camera is
your best choice to build an intelligent IP surveillance system.
Adaptive Profile
With the innovative embedded Image Signal Processor (ISP), this camera responds to
changing lighting condition with customized algorithm. This allows for clear image with very
little noise at night.
H.264/MPEG-4/MJPEG Triple Codec Dual Streaming
This device supports 3 compression formats, H.264, MPEG-4 and MJPEG. It brings superior
image quality at 15 frames per second in Full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080). In 720p (1280 x 720)
and VGA resolution (640 x 480) the device reaches 30 frames per second.
Advanced WDR
Advanced WDR technology is the most advanced approach of improving the dynamic range of
the camera. While many other WDR technologies enhance the dynamic range while producing
noise, blur edges of objects and untrue colors, Advanced WDR is designed to improve the
dynamic range while keeping the true colors, sharp edges of objects and free from noise.
Powerful Bundled Surveillance Software
To extend the capabilities of the IP PTZ Camera series, a powerful surveillance program is
included in the package for free. Users can easily use an existing PC as a digital video recorder.
Scheduled recording and manual recording keep every important video recorded in the local
hard disk. Reliable and accurate motion detection with instant warning enables immediate
response in every condition. Quick and simple search and playback function lets you easily find
the images and video you want.
Software Development Kit Support
This IP PTZ Camera can be integrated or controlled by applications from third party software
developers. Software developers can save considerable efforts by using our Streaming Library
or ActiveX control.

Physical description
1) Digital Input / Output
Used in applications like motion detection, event triggering, time lapse recording, alarm
notifications, etc., the I/O terminal connector provides the interface to:
-2 transistor output - For connecting external devices such as relays and LEDs. Connected
devices can be activated by Output buttons on the Live View page or through video
management software. Connect Pin 2 with 4 or 6 with 8.
-2 Digital Input - An alarm input for connecting devices that can toggle between an open and
closed circuit, for example: PIRs, door/window contacts, glass break detectors, etc. The device
will detect the change in digital input and transmit the signal to video surveillance servers.

(Pin 5 – 8 repeats Pin 1-4 for another set of DIO)
Connect input/output devices to the camera as follows:
1. Attach the cables for the device securely to the supplied green connector block.
2. Once cables are connected, push connector block into the terminal connector on camera.
2) Audio Input / Output
The IP device supports audio input and output via 3.5mm phone jack.
3) DC 12V Power Input
Connect DC power source to the terminal block. The wire with white dashed lines is the live
wire, which should connect to the 12V pin.
4) Ethernet Port
The IP device connects to the Ethernet via a standard RJ45 connector. Supporting NWAY, this
IP device can auto detect the speed of local network segment (10Base-T/100Base-TX

1) Power Button
Press the Power Button and then camera will reboot automatically.
2) Reset Button
Step 1: Switch off IP device by disconnecting the power cable
Step 2: Press and continue to hold the Reset Button (with a sharp tipped object, like a pen.)
Step 3: Reconnect the power cable while continuing to hold the reset button. The red
Power LED light will flash on for 3 second first, turn off for about 15 seconds, flash on for
another second and turn off again. By this time the reset to default operation is already
completed. This will take around 20 seconds from power up. You may then release the
reset button. This length of time fluctuates slightly with the environment. The Power LED light
will come back on and stay on after a few more seconds. The unit will start up with factory
default settings automatically.

2. Accessing Camera
If you have DHCP server / router in your network:
Many network server / routers are able to automatically provide IP addresses through DHCP. If
you are using such a network, just plug in your computer and IP PTZ Cam into the network and
your IP device will acquire network address by itself. Find and access the device with our IP
Utility program. You may download it at:
If you do NOT have DHCP server / router in your
1. Configure your PC to use the same subnet by changing your PC’s IP address to the
subnet with prefix 192.168.0.XXX. The last number should be anything from 1 to 254
except 100 and other occupied IP addresses. Subnet mask should be 255.555.255.0.
2. The default IP used by this device is Please make sure your PC is
NOT using this address and that no two equipments use the same IP address in
the network.
3. Change your IP address by going to Control Panel ->Manage Network Connections ->
Right click on the connection to change -> Option -> TCP/IP IPv4 Properties.
Please set the settings as below.
IP address: 192.168.
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.
(NOTE: xxx should be a number
from 1 to 254 except 100, which is
used by the IP device. Please also
make sure that no two equipments
use the same IP address in the
same network..)

unused IP address, so that when the next device is connected to the network, no two
devices use the same IP. Please perform the following steps.
7. Go to Network -> Connection Type
8. Change the IP mode to Static.
9. Change the IP to or any other unused IPs. Do NOT use the PC’s IP
address or If this is not the first device you add to the network, please
also avoid other devices’ IPs.
10. Click “Apply”
11. Please go to Maintain -> Save & Reboot, and click ”Apply”. Internet Explorer will close
after a few seconds. This is normal.
